Vacation Bible School (VBS) 2020 Survey

As I am sure all are aware, we had to cancel our parish's 2020 VBS due to the COVID restrictions & protocols!  Even though we cannot be together at St. Francis High School this year, we have some ideas on how we COULD gather before the school year begins.

If you have children entering Grades K - 5,

or middle/high school age teens, 

we NEED your opinion about the feasibility of gathering in August.

Please go to this link - 


for an important survey!

We will also continue to live stream 8:15am daily mass & Sundays @9am

for those who must choose not to attend.

When watching these live-streamed masses, making a Spiritual Communion, (See Prayer HERE)

during the communion time, unites one's self in prayer with Christ's sacrifice.

Building Project

The next phase of the Sacred Space - Social Place Project has started - actual construction.


The estimate time for completion is 18-24 months. If you have ever been involved in any type of a construction project, the best laid plans seem to not go as planned, so let's figure on 24 months.

It is our intent to keep you updated on the progress through the bulletin and the website.
